If the tyres can last 600 km, that means the teams with BS tyres won't have to change tyres at all on the race.

But how about the grip & the performance? I guess there must be some kind of trade off with the durability.

I don't know if the team actually used that tire.
The news source is Subaru's YouTube distribution.

I see the GT86 new version becoming a jaf gt300 car in the future, so what happens to the Supra?

Given its competitiveness, GR Supra GT300 will be still around for next seasons. It's possible to build GR86 on traditional JAF-GT spec from scratch, but I think the already established GR Supra will be more preferable especially for teams which want to switch cars for next season.

Anyway, with the GR Supra GT, I'm also glad because number of JAF-GT cars keep increasing, reducing domination of FIA GT3 cars.

But if someone wants to build next-gen Mother Chassis cars, I think GR86 will be the proper one as the base car (regardless of the engine).

Sorry for off topic.
According to Yomiuri Shimbun (newspaper),
Nissan will introduce FIA-GT4 variant race car of 400Z into market.

Autosport web is reporting au Supra (#36) race report.
In the article, Tsuboi says he was caught up and made a gap by NSXs during the FCY.
Paddock rumors say that NSX and Supra had different speed limiter setups.
In short, NSX was faster than Supra during FCY.

According to Juichi Wakisaka blog,
Aguri Suzuki and Keiichi Tsuchiya (ARTA) say surely Fukuzumi made a mistake, but he's okay because ARTA (#8) car was shown lot on J-sports TV.

That seems like a perfectly sensible route to take with the new car.
